Where did you serve and what did you do?
While stationed in Texas and California, my primary MOS was as an All Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic, but I also worked as a Unit Supply Specialist, Armament Specialist and a Power Generation Specialist.
How are you #StillServing?
Although no longer in the military, I remain employed within the federal government as a city letter carrier of the US Postal Service, and became a member of the local branch of my craft’s signatory union, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC). During my four and half years of union membership I have embraced the advocacy of the NALC and have become a Letter Carrier Congressional Liaison through the California Association of Letter Carriers (CSALC).
With that particular position, the requirement is to meet with members of Congress to discuss house resolutions and appropriations that pertain to the Postal Service. Liaisons are assigned to as many members of Congress as practicable. The Postal Service has a history of providing employment to service members and keeping Congress up-to-date with issues and will continue to provide career opportunities for veterans.
Why do you do it?
Being an advocate is a choice, but also, it’s a passion and if I can help my fellow brothers and sisters gain employment, I will continue to work effortlessly. Transitioning is very difficult, and service members should not have to find it difficult to achieve employment when they come home.
